Water Chimes

Today was Imbolc - the day halfway between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It's the day that it finally starts to feel like the days really are getting longer, the sun really is getting stronger. Spring will come!

It was a gorgeous day, sunny, brisk, a little bit windy. It was chilly today, after a couple of warmer days.

As I was walking this afternoon, I went by Jamaica Pond. The Pond was refreezing, after thawing out a bit the last couple days. But the wind wouldn't let the ice stay in one place. The wind and waves were throwing chunks of ice up onto the shore.

In certain spots, there was a beautiful, magical sound like underwater wind chimes. In some places, it was light, high, and subtle. In others, the pieces of ice were larger and it sounded like a full orchestra.
